  • Tshehla, Cheledi; Wright, C.Y. (Caradee) (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2019)
    Air pollution is characterised by the presence of chemicals or compounds in the air which are usually not present or are present at levels higher than those considered to be safe for human health. 1 Air pollution is the ...
  • Wright, C.Y. (Caradee); Norval, Mary (Health and Medical Publishing Group, 2014-08)
    The impact of climate change on human health and well-being has already been observed. Direct effects such as those related to heat, cold, floods, storms and solar ultraviolet radiation have been documented.[1] Some ...
  • Wright, C.Y. (Caradee); Mathee, Angela; Garland, Rebecca M. (Health and Medical Publishing Group, 2014-08)
    There is advanced consensus on the anthropogenic roots of climate change. Extreme weather events, including storms of increased intensity or frequency, heatwaves, floods and droughts, as well as rising sea levels and crop ...
  • Wright, C.Y. (Caradee); Millar, Danielle A. (National Association for Clean Air, 2019)
    Air pollution poses a major threat to human health. It is estimated that 91% of the world’s people live in places that did not meet the air quality guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO, 2019a). Exposure to ...
  • Wright, C.Y. (Caradee); Garland, Rebecca M.; Norval, Mary; Vogel, Coleen H. (Health and Medical Publishing Group, 2014-08)
    Climate change is projected to lead to warmer temperatures, especially in southern Africa, where the warming is predicted to be 2°C higher than the global increase. Given the high burden of disease already associated with ...
  • Wernecke, Bianca; Millar, Danielle A.; Walters, Michele; Ganswindt, Andre; Dziba, Luthando; Wright, C.Y. (Caradee) (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2020-07)
    Zoonoses account for about 25% of the infectious disease burden in low-income countries. Poverty might increase the risk for zoonotic disease where the active human–livestock and human–wildlife interfaces can increase ...
